My husband and I had a wonderful afternoon touring three Cayuga wineries, with an amazing host Emma. She was very personable, enthusiastic and extremely knowledgable about the Finger Lakes region, wines, and the wine business. The tour included a number of thoughtful touches, including snacks, filled water bottles and a picture of us in a winery (each tour guest received... More

Very wonderful tour guide and they even took us on an extra stop to see a waterfall, that really made the trip above and beyond. We got VIP treatment at each winery we went to and it really showed the relationship the company has with the owners. Everything was great and very reasonable price wise for everything you get. Amazing... More

This tour was amazing!! If you are thinking about booking and reading the reviews just do it. Listen, tastings are so much fun...but they are even more fun when you have someone driving you so you don't need to worry about how much tasting your doing :) My husband and I booked the Cider Wine and Lunch on Cayuga tour....

My brother and I took the wine and lunch on Seneca lake and once again were impressed with Experience! This was my third outing and each time I am reminded of the attention to detail and the full service offered. Our only responsibility was to show up and enjoy. They literally handle everything else- even our shopping was carried, stored... More

We did this tour and weekend getaway for a bachelorette party and had the best time. This was such a well organized trip. The tour guide was excellent and each stop was carefully curated. The owner of La Tourelle went out of his way to make us feel welcome. I would recommend this to everyone!

Have done many tours with the EXPERIENCE....loved them all....I love the way that they make arrangements with the sites that you are going to and they do "above and beyond" for the group.

Thanks so much for the sweet review, Linda! As you know, we covet our returning guests (or as Steph refers to them "repeat offenders"), and know that they are the litmus test to doing it right!
